Default Rose McGowan

Rose McGowan as an actress is maybe best known for starring in the TV-series Charmed for years.

These days she is probably best known as one of the women that accused film producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault. Weinstein claims that the sex was consensual.
McGowan claims that after she was assaulted by Weinstein in 1997, she got $100,000 to settle her accusations of rape.

McGowan claims that last year, through her lawyer, she was offered $1 million hush money, to sign a nondisclosure agreement.
McGowan tells that she thought about this:
Quote:
I figured I could probably have gotten him up to three. But I was like — ew, gross, you’re disgusting, I don’t want your money, that would make me feel disgusting.

In January, Rose McGowan published her memoirs “Brave” in which she refers to Weinstein as “the Monster” (for legal reasons she didn’t use his name)…
McGowan claims to have told A-list actor Ben Affleck about the sexual assault.

McGowan writes in her book that as a child she was physically abused by the leaders of The Children of God, and that:
Quote:
I saw an 11-year-old girl being forced to sit next to a naked man, with his floppy d**k on his leg. They made her sit between his legs so he could ‘massage’ her back.
At 15, McGowan appeared as an extra in the film Class of 1999; one of the "very famous" men involved in the film called her up to his hotel room and sexually assaulted her:
Quote:
It all happened so fast. He promptly pulled down my shirt and fondled my breasts. Of course, it was me who felt dirty and ashamed…
It didn’t occur to me to say anything. For years I thought of the incident as a sexual experience versus sexual assault. Later, when I became an adult, I realized that it actually was assault.
McGowan soon realised that Hollywood:
Quote:
that town is really built on sickness. Very early on I looked at the power structure, the figureheads, the silence, the closed ranks. Nobody tells. It operates like a cult.
